Wow, that's a beautiful watch Ken, well done. First of it's name I believe. Has anyone else noticed that in our dB we spell Brummel (one "L") but in most of  - not all of - Bulova docs they spell it two "LL" Brummell. If you have time, read about the man, it's an interesting story.....

...only if it was never worn or used.  NOS is more of a provenance that a condition.  But it sure looks like it's in the condition a NOS watch would have, which is mint or near mint. Beautiful watch!!  Three ticks confirmed ID from me.
